What does your kid do in his/her recreation time? Hopefully they don't get into trouble, but if they do maybe this infographic will help you figure out what you need to focus them on.

The average kid spends 7.5 hours a week watching television or DVDs. Surprisingly, the amount of time spent on the internet and gaming is lower than TV at 5 hours a week. However, in 2012 90% of kids are accessing the internet, so there are very few children who aren't on the net. On a non-electronic note, kids spend 3.5 hours of their recreation time each week reading for pleasure.

Only 60% of kids are involved in sports with the most popular choice for boys being soccer. For girls, swimming reigns supreme in terms of sports activities.
